Our verdict:

Cambodia is a beguiling mix of ancient wonders - including the must-see temple complex at Angkor - rich Buddhist culture and tragic recent history. Join one of the small-group tours with Explore where around 60% of guests are travelling solo and your expert guide will bring this beautiful country alive for you.

Explore says

We have more than 36 years’ experience of organising intrepid group trips, tailor-made travel and self-guided walking and cycling holidays around the globe, and we now offer more than 550 trips in 120 countries.

  • expert-guided groups
  • popular with solos
  • room share option

Our groups tend to consist of 10 to 16 people, with an average age of 53. Around 40% of clients on our small group trips travel alone – we offer a free room share option, matching up solo travellers with a fellow explorer of the same gender, or you can pay a supplement for a single room. Find out more about travelling solo with Explore.

Our expert team has created a wide choice of experiences in Cambodia, with walking, trekking, cycling and rail trips as well as a selection of 18 different small group discovery tours.

Cambodia Highlights is one of our most popular choices for solo travellers – it’s an eight day adventure, travelling by bus and boat, which takes in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and the temples of Angkor and Tonle Sap Lake.

If you want more of an adventure, our 12 day Cambodian Trails trip takes you to and then beyond the “classic” Cambodia sights to explore off the beaten track. Walk with the elephants in the Elephant Valley Project, trek in the eastern province of Mondulkiri and take to the Irrawaddy to spot endangered freshwater dolphins.

Single parents who want to share incredible experiences with their children can join one of our family group adventure trips such as this Family Cambodia Adventure, for ages seven years and over.

Accommodation varies from trip to trip, from moderate hotels to village stays.
